A healer is someone able to invoke the functions of our own body to help us heal ourselves.  In effect healers do not ‘heal’ directly,  they trigger our own body functions using such mechanisms as acupuncture, reiki or osteopathy or a whole host of what some doctors call disparagingly ‘alternative medicine’ and what the people who have been healed via this route call ‘effective non intrusive medicine’.  Many spiritual healers are genuinely gifted, but there are, like all professions, a few that are not.  It is not always the descriptions of the people they have healed which are of most interest, but their own observations of what had happened to them, whilst healing.
